BOXYCHARM: November Base Box

BOXYCHARM: November Base Box

Natasha Denona | Peak Palette

MSRP: $48.00

“A 5-pan palette featuring Natasha’s essential everyday warm-toned eye pigments that she mixes and matches from her favorite palettes- all reorganized and wrapped into one! Composed of both creamy matte and metallic formulas from the cult classic Biba, Safari, and Sunrise eyeshadow palettes, you’ll find yourself reaching for this all season long.”

I like this palette. I do not like the retail price for 5 shades, but I guess you are paying for quality. The quality is there, rich pigmentation, buttery smooth application and amazingly easy to blend but $48? In this economy? I don’t know about all that. Thank goodness for my BOXYCHARM subscription. I created this eye look using it.

Peach & Lily | Power Calm Hydrating Gel Cleanser

MSRP: $28.00

“Cleansing properly can be the difference between healthy skin and problem-prone skin. This gentle sulfate-free cleanser contains no harmful ingredients and keeps your skin barrier intact, so you can start your routine right with skin that feels deeply cleansed, refreshed, and hydrated.”

Now full disclosure, I have only used this cleanser twice because I just got it and I’m really committed to my Fenty Skin skincare routine. All that aside I enjoyed my sessions using this cleanser. It smells like chamomile and camelia. It gently cleanses the skin, did not irritate my eyes. My skin did not feel dry or stripped afterwards but plump and ready for me to add my toner and serums.

Milk Makeup | Kush Waterproof Mascara

MSRP:$24.00

“A waterproof, intense black mascara with thickening, heart-shaped fibers, and conditioning hemp-derived cannabis seed oil.”

This mascara is… mascara. I personally prefer mascaras that thicken and lengthen. This one thickens but I don’t see a great difference.  Maybe after repeated use I can see the benefits of the hemp seed oil but first impression is meh, mascara.

Yensa Beauty | Pumpkin Turmeric 2-in-1 Radiance Polishing Mask

MSRP: $45.00

“A 2-in-1 mask infused with 8 orange skin-loving ingredients to help nourish and polish your face for a hydrated, smooth, supple, and radiant complexion. The lightweight and exfoliating formula resurfaces skin in only 5-10 minutes.”

I received this mask with a different subscription service in the past and loved it. It lived up to its claims and leaves the skin soft, supple, and radiant. I was happy to receive a full-size bottle in this month’s box.

Jecca Blac | Liquid Corrector 2.0

MSRP: $15.00

“Meet the perfect under eye brightener, which disguises darkness and evens out skin tone. The lightweight formula creates a natural, glowing finish.”

At first, I was a little skeptical of if this product would work for me. I usually use a more orange to red color corrector and the formula did take me aback. It is noticeably light weight and has a slightly watery consistency. I used my finger to bend it out under my eye and was amazed at how easy it blended it out. It actually corrected my dark under eyes! It plays well with my concealer and setting powder. Definitely adding this to my regular makeup routine.
